Heli-skiing in the legendary powder snow of British Columbia, Canada

i

The Skeena Mountain range is one of the few heli-skiing areas that offers a huge diversity of terrain catering more to the intermediate to expert skier from high vertical slopes with extreme steeps to more gentle powder bowls and sweeping glades.  An abundance of tree skiing provides more heliskiing opportunities during bad weather periods.

i

Located in British Colombia only 3 hours from Vancouver, Skeena can be accessed by direct flight to Smithers (1½ hr flight from Vancouver) and a 1½ hr drive to your accommodation.

i

We have a very good partnership with the exclusive "The Cliffs at Kispiox River" lodge to offer our clients unparalleled quality accommodation.  It is only 5 minutes by helicopter to your first runs.  This is a beautiful and comfortable private lodge with 8 double rooms reserved exclusively for our group.

i

Skeena’s commitment is to provide our clients with the ultimate skiing experience.

i

We use B2/B3 or Bell 407 helicopters that allow us to access the best terrain in any conditions from landing amongst the trees to the top of shoots.

i

With 3 highly experienced mountain guides, 1 TopSki guide and 2 Canadian guides, our helicopters cater to a maximum of 3 groups of 5 guests with 1 guide per group.

i

That’s sheer exclusivity and more fresh tracks guaranteed, right there!
